The Jelly Bean


Ahh, the humble jelly bean. Over recent weeks these colourful little treats have become my favourite 'mid-ride' fuel source. When you see me digging in my back pockets, you can be assured I'm searching for one or two of these.

The glucose variety available at evey good chemist are the ones I would consider to be the best, providing an almost instantaneous increase in energy levels - hmmm.. maybe its just because they're full of sugar.

My personal favourites are the red ones - and no Matt, its not because of the colour, its because they taste the best.

At the end of the day, I'm not sure the jelly bean is the most recommended mid-ride snack for roadies, but who cares, they sure taste darn good and I love 'em.
